Gripper for packages/boxes


The challenge from the customer was that packages up to 20 kg, in wide-ranging dimensions, needed to be gripped in their application. To provide feedback to the robot palletizing program, the corresponding package height also needed to be monitored.


A simple but effective pneumatic gripper with a gripper stroke and force stroke was developed as the solution. A height sensor for the packages is also integrated. Furthermore, the gripper executes a narrow layering and stacking pattern.
